"You're a much stronger player than I was at your age."

I love everything that coda represents, that despite the efforts of so many around him, Josh will always be the decent person his mother knows him to be.

(I'm not counting the "Thanks" that follows, so there.)

Another favorite that never fails to get me a little misty-eyed:

/translation: "Where's my fucking medal?"

"I will see you again in another life when we are both cats."

I love VANILLA SKY. While I'm on Cameron Crowe, it's a sound not a line but the ding at the end of SAY ANYTHING is great.

"If you're hungry try a piece of your friend!"

DOOMSDAY is a fucking blast.

Ah, good point. In that case, I'll go with the unforgettable closing line from Caddyshack 2 where Jackie Gleason, or maybe Dan Aykroyd, or was it Jonathan Silverman utters the timeless words ... er ... um, nevermind.

The final scene at the dinner table in A History of Violence conveys more than most films without a single word.

"Fuck"
Eyes Wide Shut.
Don't know the actual quote but always loved the way The Rules of Attraction ends half way through a monologue.

"And so I married James Tyrone, and I was happy, for a while."

Hepburn sells the SHIT out of that line.

Aaaaand thats why Director's Cuts should exist.
Although the last line of the theatrical cut is nearly identical (or at least the last few words of the last line)

You got my favorite. I'm so glad I didn't see this when I was younger so I didn't clumsily draw it on every notebook, bookbag, and piece of clothing I owned, because I most definitely fucking would have.

From the Hudsucker Proxy:

“And that's the story of how Norville Barnes climbed waaay up to the forty-fourth floor of the Hudsucker Buildling, and then fell all the way down but didn't quite squish hisself. You know, they say there was a man who jumped from the forty-FIFTH floor? But that's another story...”

One of the many translations...

"The farmers have won. Not us."

'Hi Brigman.'
'Hi Mrs. Brigman.'

Great emotional payoff there.
post #81 of 326
"Mein Fuhrer! I can walk!"

Somebody has to mention:

"The Force will be with you, always."

I kind of wish the sequels had just not existed, and it ended right there, honestly. It was perfect.

Edit: Crap, I just remembered that the Force line wasn't the closing line. There was that whole scene with Leia greeting Luke and Han when they land. I think the final line is something lame like "He'll be alright", in reference to R2-D2. Weak.

And no, I don't count Chewbacca roaring at the medal ceremony.

"Forget it, Jake. It's Chinatown."

Can't believe we made it to page two without that one.

“Where ya headed, cowboy?”
“Nowhere special.”

Actual closing dialogue of Chinatown: “All right. Come on, clear the area. On the sidewalk. On the sidewalk, get off the street.”

Two of my favorites.

"I didn't ask for that and I don't want it. Goodbye, Leo."

In the cause of poetry, I'm going to pretend that those are sound effects.

Did anyone cite "Hail to the King, baby!" yet?

How 'bout this classic?

'Does she know.. her daughter.. is still alive?' Left the theater BUZZING.

A personal favorite from the 25th Hour:

"This life came so close to never happening.."
post #91 of 326
The movie's got issues, but I can't help but love the closing gag/line from Sky Captain.

"Polly... lens cap."

Easily my favorite James Cagney movie:

"All right, fellas. Let's go and say a prayer for a boy who couldn't run as fast as I could."

This one's an easy one. Still tears me up.

"I was to think of these days many times. Of Jem, and Dill, and Boo Radley, and Tom Robinson, and Atticus. He would be in Jem's room all night, and he would be there when Jem waked up in the morning."
